International Seed Federation to Host Virtual Congress

Just as farmers must continue to plant seed and steward the land, the companies and organizations behind that quality seed must continue to operate and innovate. That’s why the International Seed Federation will host a Virtual Congress, powered by Seed World, June 8-10.

The issues and priorities of importance to the international seed industry haven’t faded in the face of this global pandemic; one can easily argue that they’re being exacerbated — making the need for a meeting even more critical for seed professionals around the world.

“The International Seed Federation, as the voice of the private seed sector, is not staying silent,” says Michael Keller, ISF Secretary General. “Even with our postponement of our World Seed Congress 2020 in South Africa, we continue to engage in an inventive way on topics that continue to be important, if not even more critical, during this time. It cannot be business as usual.”

The ISF Virtual Congress will bring together industry leaders and experts, who will be live and ready to interact and answer your questions. After the live event, information from the virtual congress will be accessible June 11-17.

“We’ve long supported ISF, the international seed industry and those businessmen and women whose livelihoods depend on it,” says Shawn Brook, president of Issues Ink and publisher of Seed World. “We’re excited to offer our top-of-the-line virtual platform to help convene some of the world’s foremost in seed, food and agriculture.”
